Ann was brilliant to book with. She was extremely efficient and provided expert guidance and advice when booking. As a family we thought both tours were terrific. We loved the mask making workshop and the trip to Murano to visit a glass factory.
Elisabetta was brilliant with children. She came down to their level and involved them all the way. I loved the fact she started off showing them a map of Venice and gave them lots of fun quiz questions throughout. It made them active learners without them knowing it. She was fun, polite and a pleasure to have spent the afternoon with. I would thoroughly recommend her.
Samuele tour was good too. Both were very special. The girls had lots of fun and learnt lots. His expert knowledge in finding the right places to do these activities which would suit children was evident and very appreciated. Again, I would recommend him.
I found the tours on the Internet when looking specifically for tours with children in mind. We are already thinking of using you when we visit Tuscany next year!
The only thing I perhaps would have liked would have been a plan of what the tour guides were going to do so we could plan our other days a little better and not repeat anything. Luckily we had not really visited Murano yet but if we had, we would have then repeated the experience.
Apologies for the late feedback. We certainly look forward to using you again.
Please express our thanks to Ann, Elisabetta and Samuele for their parts in our experience. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for all your advice and time.
PRIVATE OSTIA FAMILY TOUR FOR CHILDREN
The remains of the ancient port for Rome date back to around 600 B.C. With a population of approx. 50,000 and its own forum, temples, theatre, bath houses and vigils barracks it is as interesting to see as going further afield to Pompeii. Put this family tour on your must see list if you are interested in ancient Rome history and archaeology but do not have time to travel all to Pompeii.
Ostia Antica, also known as the Better Pompeii, is a huge archaeological site perfect for hands-on exploring. Outstanding as Pompeii but far less touristy and easier to reach the ancient Roman port town of Ostia is located just a short ride from the city. Moreover, without the crowds of Pompeii it is much easier to let your imagination run wild and feel like archaeologists for a day!
Walk along cobbled streets among 2000 years old temples, houses, and shopping arcades in the footsteps of sailors and merchants. From the bakery to the fishmongers, from the bars, restaurants and public toilets to the town square, every stop reveals images of a rich, bustling port life. Some buildings are three stories high and it is possible to climb the steps and take in the view the sheer extent of the well-preserved ruins. Explore the amphitheater and hear interesting facts and tales about gladiators and actors. There is no end to the fun, as you discover mosaics and frescoes depicting mythical characters. Ostia family tour has all the ingredients for an exciting trip time traveling back to the days of the Romans.
